They had a huge pump there this morning where I imagine it was under water again closer to the Moyne road end, river flowing down from it at the roundabout.

It might be because they have to stop twice inside of 200 metres to cross a road and get back onto the road (when there is a gap) or because people walk on it and ignore the bike lane.

Or maybe another reason I am not familiar with

The track the council are working on at Robswals only had a mud surface til now, its not the bad one parallel to the main road, where you have to yield to traffic turning onto and off the main road, and then yield again to rejoin the main carriageway.

at least 100 mtrs of it under water just north of Moyne Rd

I don't think this issue is going to go away.

I don't why they didn't build it further up the hill

Not as if Baldoyle has a history with flooding, and this couldn't of been predicted.

The whole area is a flood plain, the greenway was delayed while developers of the houses near the station installed drainage works so the hope is that this was a blockage or other failure rather than the system simply being unable to cope

That section of the old racecourse is pure marshland anyway and has always been prone to flooding.
